/with +Ankur Kotwal

Google Play services 5.0 is now available on devices worldwide, with new APIs for Android wearables, games services, secure networking, and much more. 

You can get started developing today by downloading the updated Google Play services SDK (r18)  from the SDK Manager.  API details and samples are also  available in the updated documentation. Here are some of the  highlights:

Services for Android wearables:  Your apps can more easily communicate and sync with code  running on Android wearables through an automatically synchronized, persistent data store and a reliable messaging interface.
Dynamic security provider: Provides an alternative to the platform's secure networking APIs that can be updated more frequently,  for faster delivery of security patches.
Quests and Saved Games in Google Play Games services:  Build a great gaming experience with Quests, which provide time-based events including rewards for completion. Saved Game APIs let you store and synchronize game data to the cloud, along with a cover-image and description.
App Indexing API:  With app indexing you can surface deep content in your native mobile applications on Google search and drive additional user engagement. 
More new APIs in Cast, Drive, Wallet, Analytics, and Mobile Ads.
